In the Craft Room: Calaway Park Mini Album

Regan often tells me I am pretty intense about the scrapbooking stuff. And I know I am. But I love it.
I think too many people make it too complicated. I used the November Scraptivity kit to make this mini album.
I pulled in past stamps, past papers and scraps. And the whole thing (these are all the pages) took me about 2 hours. I didn't really stress out about photo placement or if it was "right". I just glued and cut and pasted. And played.

And I am so happy to have a little record of all of our Calaway Park trips. Both Alden and Lucy have looked at it multiple times already and they both enjoy it. And that is what counts!

very fun! How many scrapbooks do you have? I bet lots! You need a cricut! If you don't have one already. I don't even scrapbook and I want one!

It's awesome Rhonda! Totally awesome! I love that paper on the cover - who makes it?!

That is great! I did the same thing for Bella - I made her a mini album for her class so her classmates could get to know her. Her K teacher loved it and kept saying to me "oh you must have spent hours and hours on this". Um, no. Just whatever I had on hand and that was all. It is a great way to use up scraps, and then you have instant gratification because you have completed an entire project! Totally cool!!

what a great album. I am doing the same thing for the kids Disney trip - her classmates want to see the photos of her trip. I love the cover - what paper is that anyway?

What a totally cool project!! I see a little Ali inspiration in it and I can just imagine it being well-loved by your kids. And in 2 hours - you are a whirlwind!
